Biography

Only Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson can rival Frank Sinatra for biggest-selling solo artist of all time. His jazz-influenced singing remained internationally renowned whatever whims, fashions or innovations were introduced by new generations. In a solo career that included over 70 albums and hundreds of singles, from the late-30s until the mid-90s, Sinatra remained universally loved even as ... Read more in Amazon's Frank Sinatra Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

#1 for five weeks in 1958, one of the triumphs of his recording career. Billy May supplies the arrangements.

Amazon.com

When critics refer to Sinatra's Capitol albums, their highest praise is usually reserved for the dark melancholy of Wee Small Hours or Only the Lonely. But the upbeat "Swinging" records should not be ignored. Probably the finest of these albums is Come Fly with Me. The first of Sinatra's albums with arranger Billy May (whose arrangements have been overshadowed by Nelson Riddle's), Fly is the conceptual equal of Lonely-a carefree, romantic musical travelogue. From the opening invitation--one of Sinatra's most rollicking vocals--to the tender invocations of "Autumn in New York" and "April in Paris," and the serene seductiveness of "Moonlight in Vermont," Sinatra personified the modern traveler--jaunty, cosmopolitan, irrefutably cool. --Steven Mirkin

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended for all Sinatra fans.

What I was impressed by is the quality of the pressing and the sound of this vinyl LP.

Great Sinatra album with the great Billy May doing the arranging.

A great Frank Sinatra album at his best vocally. Being a sound engineer I must admit a bit of dissapointment at the Re-mastering of this CD....Why push the volume up so much on these old analog recordings...I understand that everyone wants to be as loud as Diana Kralls last CD, but they souldn't do it at the expense or the overall sound....Fortunatly Sinatra's voice wasn't affected much, but the big band sometimes sounds a little distorted...I'm sure it didn't on the original LP.

I'm sure that most folks don't even hear these things....But there ya go.

This was the album that got me hooked on Sinatra 25 years ago when I was in my early teens. Maybe it was the cover showing a very hip Sinatra about to travel with a pretty girl to an exotic location. Maybe it was the absolutely perfect choice of songs (with the possible exception of "Blue Hawaii" which doesn't do it for me.) How many songs allow you to travel the camel route to Iraq or savor Autumn in New York? They truly don't write tunes like this anymore. Maybe it was the sparkling and witty arrangements by Billy May who proved on this album he could write strings as well as uptempo pieces.
Whatever it was, I have listened to this album hundreds of times and never gotten tired of it. You won't either. With its mixture of swingers and ballads, this is the perfect album to get someone listening to Frank.

This is the first I ever heard of Sinatra (3 years ago) and I have been fixated ever since. My collection now consists of hundreds of songs, all excellent. Given my experience, I'd say this is the best introduction to Sinatra you can get.
On this album, you see all of Sinatra: the swing and the ballads. You also see a great arranger (Billy May) showcasing his versatility, something he doesn't really get to do on the (IMO) overrated "Come Dance". The swing is highlighted by tongue-in-cheek renditions of "Isle of Capri", "Let's Get Away From It All", "It's Nice to Go Trav'ling", and the brilliant title track. The most interesting arrangements on the album are "Mandalay" with it's exotic flourishes and "Brazil" with (to quote the liner notes) "[it's] constantly shifting rhythmic tapestry."
The ballads on "Come Fly with Me" are often overlooked, but nonetheless solid. "Around the World" is in my top 10 of all the ballads he recorded. The moods vary, from the somewhat sad "Autumn in New York" to the most romantic "Around the World", and "Moonlight in Vermont", "Blue Hawaii" and "London by Night" in between.
Another detail that makes this album great is three excellent bonus tracks: the immortal classics "Chicago" and "South of the Border" and an equally great version of "I Love Paris."
In summary, make this your FIRST SINATRA PURCHASE. Forget all those compilations that lack the cohesion and overall strength of this conceptual masterpiece. Highly recommended.

This is one of Sinatra's classic theme albums, with all the songs revolving around travel. Five stars isn't sufficient for an album that contains some of the great vocal tracks ever sung by Sinatra. Billy May's arrangements are nothing short of electric and infuse Sinatra's voice with a verve and exuerbance rarely heard. This is an album where you can put it on, hit play and never fast forward, all the songs are eminently Sinatraesque and every single arrangement has a touch of genius.
Frank's phrasing is (as always at this stage of his career) letter perfect. Listen to "Brazil," never a particular hit for Frank and he rarely sang it live, but who cares? It's immortalized here, forever. One wonders why he didn't incorporate this marvelously swinging song into his live repertoire, it's sheer brilliance.
If you love Sinatra, you will already have had this on vinyl and cassette (maybe even eight track). If you're new to Frank, don't hesitate one moment: grab it and listen to it for the rest of your life.

Arranger Billy May was so successful as a touring bandleader and arranger that he was unavailable to record Sinatra's first sides for Capitol in 1953. Amazingly, the two would not be joined on a project until the present project in 1957, but judging from the results, it was more than worth the wait!

May showcases his impressive range as an arranger in another of Sinatra's groundbreaking "theme" albums, this one revolving around travel. The difference in this album is that the concept stressed is not principally stylistic as in the series of albums preceding it; thus May covers the spectrum from his lush string backing on classic readings of "Autumn in New York" and "Moonlight in Vermont" to his driving brass chart on "Brazil." There was clearly a lot of fun involved in the making of this album too. Witness Sinatra's play on words in the lyrics of the witty "Isle of Capri." And who else but May and Sinatra could have combined their talents to inject an irresistible measure of swing into Rudyard Kipling's poem "On the Road to Mandalay"? The title song as well as "Let's Get Away From it All" have become core fixtures in the cache of titles most associated with Ol' Blue Eyes.

Sinatra is in peak form throughout, and May displays his genius for textures and subtle orchestral touches at every turn. This is the most varied program in Sinatra's entire recorded catolog at Capitol; add to it performer and arranger both at their considerable best, and this collection ranks as probably the finest single-album showcase of Sinatra's incredible vocal and interpretive versatility.
